View Full Version : Dust cover part replacement

04-19-2011, 8:46 AM
Anyone know what the part in the pic is called (dust cover latch)? On my Colt 22 M4, it's missing the nipple. I called them for a replacement and they said it's by design. Funny, since my Colt M16 has a working dust cover and the attached pic below is from their web site showing the disassembly and maintenance process on the exact M4 22LR I have. Looks like a functioning dust cover to me. I guess you roll the dice with customer support sometimes.

I'm sure the part is available someplace or do I actually need to replace my entire dust cover? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I know a lot of tact .22s are ar clones, can you just buy the ar part?

I think the part is called a "detent".
